I'm a Brazilian born and raised, entrepreneur since 14, creative since always, and Life Changer since I can't remember. My dream is to prove that realities can change if we decide to work and make it change. I had a hard childhood in every single way, but I didn't let the situations define my future. I chose to go after the life I wanted to build, and that brought me to America, which has been my home since 2014. Since then, I started this amazing journey to restart my life here, to find myself over and over again, and to grow as a human being. I also started breaking free through sharing my truth.
About the lifestyle manifesto
Life ain’t a to-do list.
I created The Lifestyle Manifesto because I want to empower, inspire, and guide individuals to live life on their own terms. I believe there’s a difference between living and surviving. And to be living, not just existing, you gotta get out of the “default mode.”
Self-awareness + strategy = you in control.
To be able to live a life by choice, you need to know yourself, your desires and needs. So you can start designing the life of your dreams. That’s why I say that self-awareness is the key to true freedom. You’re only free when you know yourself. And you can only live a life that’s true to you, when it’s aligned to who you are, what you want, and need. Learn more here.
what else can I say?
I live in Washington, DC, so I made the Lincoln Memorial my happy place (I go there at night when I need to clear my head). I'm a feminist, music is my fuel, I have a thing for pandas (they're the cutest), traveling is one of my big passions, and my favorites shows are Grey's Anatomy (since 2006!) and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel (can't wait to watch season 2!). I'm married, I have a cocker spaniel girl called Mel (Portuguese for honey), an accessories "business" (hobby!) called Miss Bossa Nova, and 2 real businesses: Sua Vida Desenhada (Lifestyle Design Coaching for Brazilians), and The Lifestyle Manifesto. I believe that there's a difference between living and surviving. And I'm here to live. Are you?
Now you know a lot about me. Don't forget to tell me a little about you!
